My horse is my Prozac
My horse is my Prozac. Riding keeps me sane and destressed. I had major reconstruction on my ankle and it has been 2.5 weeks with no riding,with several more to go...... I am officially clinically depressed :cry:

I feel ya.
It's been 6 weeks for me cause my horse was sick, then I got sick, then it was sloppy wet...I'm going insane! But I think I'll finally be able to ride this week. Boy, am I going to be sore. :)

I found I was clinicly depressed (runs in the family) when my first horse died. I spent six months, not wanting to get out of bed, not working, nothing. I bought Spice and I still missed Mooney a lot but it became easier to face the day, and 7 30 didn't seem that early any more.

I hear you! Its horrible I got into a bad car wreck about a year ago and I injured my neck and my previously injured knee. And ever since then I havent been able to ride much cause its so painful :( and I'm very very depressed I miss it sooooo much :(

I feel your pain honey. The best thing to do is to find a way to be around your horse, even if it's just grooming him in the cross ties. I noticed that even just that kind of contact is grounding for me. I don't know what your situation is but if you can just love on a horse it will help you shake the blues a bit. Get better soon and hope you can get ridding sooner.
